Chapter 1798 – Treating Personally
Liu Wenqiang looked at Zhao Hai with excitement. He didn’t expect that he would be in close contact with a powerful person like Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai looked at the excited face of Liu Wenqiang and gave him a smile. He could understand Liu Wenqiang’s mood. He smiled faintly and said, “Liu Wenqiang, right? You participated in the sect’s gate opening in Bright Yang City?”
Liu Wenqiang nodded and said, “Yes, Liu Wenqiang has seen Senior.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’m not a senior, calling me mister is fine. As I told everyone, as long as you have the jade token, you will be able to ask me for help. So what matter did you come to the Black Tiger Gang for?”
Hearing that Zhao Hai was going to help him, Liu Wenqiang immediately kneeled down as he teared up and said, “Mister, please save my younger brother.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand. Liu Wenqiang felt a powerful force pushing him up. He has no choice but to stand up. Then Zhao Hai asked, “What happened to your younger brother?”
Liu Wenqiang wiped the tears off his face as he said, “Mister, I’m a rogue cultivator. When I was in my teens, my parents were killed by the people of the Myriad Demons Sect. My brother was still five years old at that time, now he’s fifteen. He’s an apprentice at a pharmacy in Bright Yang City. But a few days ago, he accidentally bumped into an inner disciple of the Myriad Demons Sect. That inner disciple kicked my brother causing serious internal injuries. I have used all kinds of medicines I can afford to cure him, but he’s still ill. I have no other choice but to come over and ask Mister for help.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Good. I happen to be free right now, let me go with you.” After he said that, Zhao Hai stood up.
When Zhao Hai stood up, the atmosphere inside the room suddenly stilled. He discovered that Liu Wenqiang and the others were staring at him with blank expressions. Seeing their faces, Zhao Hai understood what they were thinking. His current status was far from ordinary. He was a core disciple of the Black Tiger Gang and was also the commanding officer of one of the two bases of the Black Tiger Gang. It could be said that his status was equal to the patriarchs of the clans and was only a bit lower than Hu Liangchen. But now, with his status, he actually wanted to follow a rogue cultivator back to Bright Yang City. The people present never imagined this to happen even in their dreams.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about their thoughts. As he looked at everyone, he smiled faintly and said, “Alright, there’s no need to be surprised. I happen to want to take a stroll in Bright Yang City. Liu Wenqiang, let’s go.”
Liu Wenqiang couldn’t stop crying as he looked at Zhao Hai. For his entire life, rogue cultivators had never been treated this well. Zhao Hai even went as far as going to Bright Yang City personally. It was a great honor for Liu Wenqiang to go to Bright Yang City with such a person. It was at this time that Liu Wenqiang’s heart has decisively rooted into the Black Tiger Gang.
Liu Wenqiang knelt to the ground and kowtowed three times towards Zhao Hai before standing up. Then he followed Zhao Hai out of the room.
This time, Zhao Hai didn’t stop Liu Wenqiang and just smiled faintly before following him out. Before long, the two arrived at the transmission formation plaza of the Wandering Soul Group base. With a flash of white light, the two disappeared from the formation.
In the next moment, the two arrived at Bright Yang City’s transmission formation. Just as they walked out, a cultivator approached them. Seeing Zhao Hai and then Liu Wenqiang, the cultivator was confused, but he still politely said, “You two, using the transmission formation costs one spirit stone each.” Zhao Hai didn’t say anything and just threw two spirit stones towards the person before leaving with Liu Wenqiang.
The man looked at Zhao Hai in confusion. He couldn’t see Zhao Hai’s strength. The man was at the core formation stage but he couldn’t see Zhao Hai’s level, which puzzled him.
But seeing Zhao Hai willingly handing spirit stones over, the man no longer cared. In his opinion, Zhao Hai shouldn’t be that strong. He was just acting mysteriously using an aura concealing method. This was the reason why the person couldn’t see Zhao Hai’s strength.
The man knew that there were only two situations when a person’s strength couldn’t be seen. First was when they practiced concealing methods to hide their strength and the second was when their strength was much greater in comparison. If it was the first case, then this meant that the person was weak. So he could only obediently hand over the spirit stones. As for the second type, they only needed to show their strength and they didn’t need to pay for using the transmission formation.
Liu Wenqiang looked at Zhao Hai in confusion. He didn’t understand why Zhao Hai gave that man two spirit stones. As the two were walking forward, Zhao Hai suddenly said, “Are you puzzled why I gave him spirit stones?”
Liu Wenqiang stared, then he was startled. He thought that Zhao Hai was blaming him for being impolite, so he quickly said, “Mister, it’s nothing, I’m just a bit confused that’s all.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s because they aren’t worth my time. In my eyes, that person is merely an ant. Moreover, two spirit stones are nothing to me at all. For two spirit stones, I managed to hide my presence here from the Myriad Demons Sect. The Myriad Demons Sect tried to kill me multiple times, I don’t want them to know that I’m in Bright Yang City.”
Liu Wenqiang stared, then he said, “Mister can rest assured, I will keep your presence here a secret.”
Zhao Hai just smiled and said, “It’s fine. Just let it be. The reason I don’t want the Myriad Demons Sect to find out that I’m here isn’t because I’m afraid of them, I just don’t want to be in conflict right now. Wenqiang, remember, in a year or so, there will be a major event that will affect the entire Great World of Cultivation. If you want, you can go to the Black Tiger Gang and look for me.”
Liu Wenqiang was puzzled by Zhao Hai’s words. But he didn’t ask for more details as he bowed and said, “Mister, I will remember.”
Zhao Hai sighed and said, “You can tell other rogue cultivators about what I said. If something really happens, you can bring them to the Black Tiger Gang. There’s no need for you to know what would happen. When the time comes, you’ll know.”
Liu Wenqiang nodded. At this time, the two had left the transmission formation plaza. Zhao Hai looked around him and said, “Lead me to your brother.” Liu Wenqiang complied and immediately flew towards a certain direction. Before long, the two went outside the city and towards a group of stone houses. The houses were clearly old and were in disrepair. Seeing the houses and its surroundings, Zhao Hai knew that this was the slum of Bright Yang City.
Liu Wenqiang led Zhao Hai to his home before embarrassingly saying, “Mister, this is where we live.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Why didn’t you live in the city? Are there fees to live inside?”
Liu Wenqiang nodded and said, “Yes, we need to pay if we want to stay in the city. Since the spiritual qi inside the city is more dense, almost all houses are under the control of the Heavenly Yang Alliance. You’ll have to pay rent every month if you want to live inside. Therefore, we can only live here. This place is called the carp pond, meaning everyone here is a carp. All of us hope that one day we can turn into dragons and fly out of this place.”
Zhao Hai nodded and then the two descended into a courtyard. In the courtyard were several cultivators. The levels of these cultivators were low. Moreover, one could see that they were no longer young. All of them were grouped up as they talked in whispers.
At this time, the group noticed Liu Wenqiang’s arrival. The oldest one among them looked at Zhao Hai with vigilance before turning to Liu Wenqiang and saying, “Wenqiang, where did you go? Little Yi is getting worse. And who is this?”
Liu Wenqiang replied, “Master Hao, this is the person I asked to save Little Yi.” Then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Mister, my brother is named Liu Wenyi. These people are my father’s and grandfather’s good friends.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he smiled at the people present and said, “Hello everyone. I’ll go and see Little Yi.” After speaking, Zhao Hai walked inside. Liu Wenqiang quickly followed him inside.
As soon as they entered the room, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. He didn’t really think that there would be such a run down house in the Great World of Cultivation. The house only had two rooms. Each room was separated by a thin layer of straw. Inside one of the rooms was a child around 14 to 15 years old. He was lying down and was heavily breathing. He seems to be gasping for breath.
Zhao Hai didn’t say much. With a wave of his hand, white light covered the child’s body. Once the light entered the child’s body, the child’s breathing began to calm down. Zhao Hai went beside the child and grabbed his wrist and scanned his body using his spiritual qi.
Before long, Zhao Hai’s face showed an astonished expression. He couldn’t help but close his eyes and carefully analyzed the child’s spiritual qi. When he took his spiritual qi back, Zhao Hai’s eyes were shining.
Liu Wenqiang looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Mister, how is Little Yi?”
Zhao Hai turned to Liu Wenqiang and then smiled faintly as he said, “There’s no more problems. Little Yi is going to be fine. He will wake up in a while. Come with me outside, I have some words to tell you.” After he said that, Zhao Hai walked outside.
Liu Wenqiang hastily followed Zhao Hai outside. Hao Ye and the others were also present outside. However, Zhao Hai didn’t care and just nodded at the others before looking at Liu Wenqiang and saying, “Wenqiang, Little Yi isn’t an ordinary person. His body contains a rich amount of metal-element spiritual qi. If I didn’t guess wrong, he should have a metal element ability that has yet to awaken. If you agree, I can take him back and help him become a disciple. What do you think?”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Liu Wenqiang’s expression lit up. He couldn’t help but bow as he said, “I’ll have to depend on Mister. On behalf of Little Yi, I accept.”
Zhao Hai nodded. At this time, a child’s voice was heard from inside, “Big Brother, Big Brother, where are you?”
